    Hesketh Single Vineyard Tatiara District Mezzo Shiraz. Wow, what a mouthful. No really, what a mouthful! A wine reeking of class and quite frankly not hard to see why Penfolds have used fruit from the very same vineyard for some of their big name, heavy-hitting (especially in the wallet) Bin wines.

    The name’s a mouthful too, so we’ll break it down for ya…

    Hesketh – the boutique, family owned producer in South Australia
    Single Vineyard – their “Old Mundulla” vineyard to be precise
    Tatiara District – Robert Hesketh was the first to plant vines here
    Mezzo – it means “halfway” in Italian, as in halfway between Adelaide and Melbourne

    The winemaker is Phil Lehmann, yes as in the son of legend Peter Lehmann. He calls this one “A bold, straight-up Shiraz…is full of ripe and juicy blackberries.”

    Aussie critic and judge Ralph Kyte-Powell (in the Sydney Morning Herald) called this simply “A bargain” and gave it 91/100. That follows scores of 90/100 (Huon Hooke MW) and 90/100 + Special Value (James Halliday).

    A Shiraz delivering a whole heap of value for $20. Drink it now or cellar for 5-8 years. Looking for a food match? We’re pretty keen on Phil’s recommendation – “A serious steak to accompany a serious Shiraz. Think dry-aged rib eye with smashed new potatoes and butter greens.”
